The Ohio River Foundation (ORF) is a non-profit organization, dedicated to protecting and improving the water quality and ecology of the Ohio River, and it’s watershed through the use of environmental education and conservation activities. The work ORF does is very important to me, so when I heard they were looking for a new website, I immediately offered my services.

Ohio River Foundation’s existing website at the time had many issues that needed solutions:

  • Too much content
  • Hard to navigate
  • Difficult to edit website
